TAG Use the rAG to associate file information with a VM/370 file. The format of the TAG command is:
r----- DEV TAq PUnch DEv CONsole [tagtext]
FIle spoolid [tagtext 1
rrinter} PUnch DEv CONsole OUery vaddr
FIle spoolid PClt CONSOLE vaddr with t.he queried.

specifies a previously closed spool file whose tag information
is to be replaced or aueried. This form of the TAG command
can only be used for reader spool files that are queued on virtual reader.
The spoolid operand is the spool file identification, a number 1 and 9900 and assigned by CP when the spool file was

certain control and addressing information, meaningful to the RSCS component of VM/370, can be specified in this field. For details on how to use the taqtext operand when transmitting

associated with a given virtual device or spool file. The
operands used with the TAG QUERY command correspond to the
operands used with TAG itself.
1. The RSCS control program interprets the tag information as being
addressinq and control parameters. When you spool a file to the RSCS virtual machine to be transmitted to a remote station, code
the taqtext operand as follows:
locid fuseridl [priority] loci1 is the location identifier (one to eight alphameric
characters) of the location to which the file is being
transmitted. Your system programmer can give you the
locids of remote stations accessible to your virtual
userid is the userid of the VM/370 virtual machine (a one-to
eiqht-character user identification) to which a file is
beinq transmitted. This operand is used by remote
stations when they transmit files to the RS:S virtual
machine and want the files sent to a particular VM/370 virtual machine. YoU can ignore this operand if you are
not specifyinq a priority. However, if you are specifying a priority, you must code some userid operand; it is
iqnored by RSCS. priority is the requested transmission priority, a decimal number
between 0 and 99. The highest transmission priority is 0, next hiqhest is 1, and so on. If you wish to specify
this operand, you must also specify a userid operand.
2. If enter the TAG command with no taqtext information, the tag area associated with the device or file is set to all blanks.
3. A spool file that you have created and spooled to another virtual
machine is owned by the other user as soon as the file is closed.
If you want to query or chanqe the tag data, you must first reclaim
the file via the TRANSFER command.
4. the buffer that contains TAG information is 134 characters
in length includinq imbedded blanks, only 126 characters of it are usable because of input command line limitations. Section 5. Format of CP Commands 155
